Andy Pettitte is a key witness against Clemens, unfortunately. I am sure it is as heart wrenching for Pettitte to be involved as it is for Clemens' fans to hear about it.

I agree and disagree.

My disagreement comes in because baseball is America's pasttime. It is one of those things that one thinks about when thinking about this great country of ours... and, Congress has entered the fray when it came to baseball many times...

For instance, there's the antitrust exemption (interesting thing to study if you like reading about the history of baseball).

I think Congress should stay out for the most part... BUT, when baseball turns a blind eye or simply refuses to correct a problem (as I think is fairly obvious in the Selig era), I don't have a problem with tax dollars being used to protect the game that is as American as hot dogs and apple pie.

Congress does have better things to do however, since they aren't doing that, they might as well do something. Congress should step in and try to clean up baseball since they don't have any competition. While they can't break up Major League Baseball like they did Ma Bell (but are letting them get back together), they can and should oversee them. If you look at it from a business perspective and not a fan's, the MLB makes a ton of money and receives a lot of tax breaks in the process.

1-on-1 Elite Personal Fitness, a Pasadena, TX gym responsible for selling HGH to Andy Pettitte, is under investigation for having a possible link to Clemens.

Investigating this particular gym may prove once and for all that Clemens lied under oath to the Congressional Judiciary Committee. Clemens, along with his son, Koby, have been spotted at this particular club numerous times.

My first thought: how does a fitness center provide HGH to patrons? Does the news story mean a trainer who works at the center?

I don't think Clemens should be implicated just for going to the gym.
